Mead pot shop burgled 2x in 1 week

Detectives are investigating the second burglary at a Mead medical marijuana dispensary in a week.

Spokane County sheriff's deputies responded to a commercial burglary alarm at Evergreen Medical Inc., 12004 N. Market, about 10:15 p.m. Tuesday and found the south side door open with the Plexiglas window removed.

Nothing was stolen, but about $1,000 worth of glass bongs, bubblers and pipes were stolen last Friday. A motorist notified police of an open and broken glass door about 8:30 a.m. Deputies found a tire iron on the floor and pry marks on several locked drawers.

Anyone with information on the burglaries is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.

Spokane Deputy Prosecutor John Grasso said Thursday that he considers marijuana dispensaries such as Evergreen to be violating state law. It's unclear if drug detectives also are investigating the business.
